 Tractor Implements Category 1 vs Category 0

Ajp2927,

Category 0 - 5/8" hitch pins, with appx. 20" distance between lower lift arms.

Category 1 = 7/8" hitch pins, with appx. 26" distance between lower lift arms.


Basically, the size of the triangle formed between the lift points is quite a bit smaller on the category 0 implement. The attaching pins are also much smaller in diameter.

.. and it seems manufacturers take some latitude with the "standard". Several manufacturers also sell limited cat-1 hitches but they can't agree on the limitations. From what I understand limited Cat-1 has most of the dimensions of Cat-1 but a limited lift height.

And on some pieces of attachments, the manufacturer installs the CAT 0 pins on the inside of the frame of the implement (pointing in or toward each other)and the CAT 1 pins on the outside (pointing out)so it can be used on either a CAT 0 or a CAT 1 tractor.

And there is the overall width or size of the implement too; generally the larger the piece, the larger the Category.

 Tractor Implements Category 1 vs Category 0

Category 0 implements are targeted for subcompact tractors so that subcompact buyers can have a selection of implements that are smaller and lighter in weight than Category 1 implements. This enables smaller machines to perform the same tasks but at a slower rate than the larger compact tractors.

You should also note that this also means that the selection of implements available for Category 0 is also smaller than Category 1.

 Tractor Implements Category 1 vs Category 0


Dennis the original catagory 0 was used as the next step up from the sleeve hitch style on garden tractors. The Cadet super series was one as well as I believe the 400 series deeres and all the larger frame garden tractors.
Catagory 1 has been around since the old legend 8N style three point hitch. I believe it was the first or at least the best known as there were many other styles that tried to take over like the fast hitch from IH, the eagle claw of Case and there was about one for every tractor manufacturer.

There are many three point hitch attachments that are what we call more universal in design that is to the dealers benifit as well as to the manufacturers! By simply changing the pins from the outside to the inside a attachment might go from a 1 to 2 in hich catagory.
The original design BX as well as the other manufacturers do to the height of the hitch is where the 0-1 catagory comes from or as some call seem to be calling it here limited catagory 1.

Art, the 3pt hitch as we know it was actually invented by Ferguson, and then used in conjunction with Henry Ford on his 9N and 2N's.

Old Henry and Mr. Ferguson were pretty sharp fellows, no body has really improved too much on their basic mechanical principles. An interesting note on Henry Ford. My wife's Grandfather worked for Henry Ford in I have no idea what year. What ever Grandpad did for Henry he knew the man personally, I've heard Grandpa remark about what a genius Henry was, but also that he was the hardest man to work for that he ever knew. Frank.
